  • Spellman: Mom enjoying Darling’s incredible journey Dec 14, 2014 7:30 AM
    To paraphrase the Grateful Dead, what an absolutely long, strange trip it’s been for Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling. And with him every step of the journey has been his mom, Cindy Darling.

  • Saad’s goal lifts Blackhawks over Flames Dec 14, 2014 10:01 PM
    Brandon Saad scored with 7:03 left in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Sunday night for their 12th victory in the last 14 games. After motoring past Calgary defenseman Mark Giordano, Saad took a centering pass from Jonathan Toews and lifted a shot past Jonas Hiller’s glove. Toews also set up Patrick Sharp’s power-play goal as the surging Blackhawks dealt the Flames their fifth straight loss. Chicago had won eight in a row before Saturday night’s 3-2 loss at the New York Islanders. Jiri Hudler had his team-leading 12th goal for Calgary, which has scored just eight times during its slide. Sharp’s goal was his first since returning Tuesday from a knee injury that sidelined him for 14 games. Sharp, who led Chicago with 34 goals last season, has four this year — all on the power play. Chicago’s Antti Raanta made 23 saves while subbing for Corey Crawford, who is out with a foot injury. Rookie Scott Darling had started the Blackhawks’ last four games. Hiller finished with 26 saves. Before the game, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said he expected Crawford to return next weekend. Raanta and Darling have filled in quite nicely since Crawford was hurt while leaving a concert two weeks ago. Neither team had many chances in the scoreless first period. Hiller made a sprawling pad save on Andrew Shaw’s rebound attempt 6:15 in. Calgary’s Johnny Gaudreau danced down the Chicago slot with a series of nifty moves with 7:59 left, but was stopped by Raanta. Hudler opened the scoring at 4:27 of the second when he trailed in late on a rush and was left open. Hudler took Gaudreau’s cross-ice feed and whistled it past Raanta’s glove. Sharp’s goal at 8:43 — just nine seconds into a power play — came off a fast passing series with Kane and Toews. From below the goal line, Toews dished across the slot to Sharp, who sprinted into the left circle and ripped in a high one-timer. The Blackhawks came on in the up-tempo third period, dominating for chunks of time and outshooting the Flames 10-5. Hiller had to be sharp to keep it close, including making several tough saves on Kris Versteeg.

  • Saad does what it takes to get win for Blackhawks Dec 14, 2014 11:07 PM
    Brandon Saad took a pass from Jonathan Toews, streaked between the circles and wrsited one over the right shoulder of goalie Jonas Hiller to give the Hawks a 2-1 lead that held up til the horn.

  • Spellman: Darling can’t save Blackhawks Dec 13, 2014 10:36 PM
    Even a career-high 38 saves by Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling wasn’t enough as Kyle Okposo and Lubomir Visnovsky scored less than a minute apart in the third period to lead New York to a 3-2 victory, snapping the Hawks’ eight-game winning streak.

  • Win streak snapped as Hawks fall to Islanders 3-2 Dec 13, 2014 9:02 PM
    Goals from Kyle Okposo and Lubomir Visnovsky less than a minute apart in the third period spoiled some sterling play in net from Scott Darling and some late-game heroics by Patrick Kane as New York edged the Hawks 3-2 to snap the Hawk’s eight-game winning streak.

  • NHL won’t discipline Seidenberg for hit on Toews Dec 12, 2014 8:08 PM

  • Hawks win eighth straight, but may lose Toews Dec 11, 2014 11:12 PM
    It should have been a night of celebration for the Blackhawks after their 3-2 win over the Bruins Thursday at TD Garden. Despite the victory, a gray cloud hung over this one concerning the health of Hawks captain Jonathan Toews, who was face-planted into the boards behind Boston’s net by defenseman Dennis Seidenberg midway through the second period. Toews, who has a history of concussions, played the next shift but would not return after that.

  • Coach Q not fretting over Keith’s playing time Dec 10, 2014 7:29 PM
    Duncan Keith was on the ice for 34 shifts and played just a tick over 30 minutes Tuesday night in New Jersey. But for Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville it was well worth it because his two-time Norris Trophy came through late with a goal in the final minutes of regulation to send the game to overtime before the Hawks snuck out with a 3-2 shootout victory.
